About this Episode

Schmitt argues that political actions and motives are rooted in friend-enemy relationships. The end of politics is to counter and oppose the enemy. All political concepts have a concrete opposition in mind. When party antagonisms within a state become the primary enemy grouping, conflict or civil war become a real possibility.
